I need to talk to more actual human beings during my day.
Things that I have done while I was not here. Spent a lot of time with a headache. Everything is in bloom here already, meaning spring allergies in the middle of winter, meaning sinus issues. Dislike. Spent a day down at the state capital building speaking with various state representatives about abolishing the death penalty. Almost went into a meeting with one of them with my skirt tucked up in my underwear. Good times. Oddly enough, while down at the capitol, I was sitting on the steps inside the building and eating a free baked potato, provided by the state potato lobby, when a childhood friend whom I haven't seen since my wedding walked past. Totally random. Free potatoes bring people together!
Celebrated one of my best ever Valentine's Days with Daniel and the kids on a local beach on a 65 degree day with gorgeous views.
Celebrated Chinese New Year with friends and with these two.
Went to a Beth Moore conference. It was really good and I got a lot out of it. But I did have to gaze directly into the eyes of another woman and repeat a bunch of stuff that Beth made us say and I've barely recovered from the last time we had to do that when my church was doing another one of her studies. Introverts beware!
Celebrated mine and Daniel's 9th wedding anniversary. He took the day off work and we hung out in downtown Seattle. We couldn't get up to the room where we got married this year (it's closed for renovation) to take our annual picture, but he brainstormed and we went to a taller building and took a picture looking down on Smith Tower. On a side note, we have a terrible time taking selfies. I think we're just too old.
Today, while freezing in my living room, I am setting up review trips to various beach resorts for other people. And working on a client report about previous beach trips that various coworkers have taken. This is not an ideal activity on a grey Thursday. But, no snow here this year, so I can't complain too much.
The cat fell asleep and is now blocking less of the heater, so I like her a bit better now.
